An astounding combination of a Kraz truck chassis and a An-2 fuselage! What a "crazy" idea... :) The An-2 is actually HA-ABH, painted as HA-VER.

Nice! It took me a while to figure out that it wasn't actually on top of the train! I can certainly understand why they cut off the tail; if you see how far it sticks out the back and how it would weather vane and topple in strong cross winds.. Nice they left the tail wheel in place though.

This is as good as the DC-3 Fusalage converted to a bus or the one that was converted to a boat! I love it!

I really enjoyed this combination... crazy idea and very creative! I love these inventions. And a charming detail: the bugle horn on the hood. :-D ... Great!

"Trains, Planes and Automobiles". By itself, a rare catch of a modified fuselage. Made even better by the train/tram in the foreground. Excellent framing.

As a lover of recycled objects, how could I not vote for this picture. Reminds me of the DC-3 and 727 forward fuselages that found their ways onto truck and bus chassis! I love everything about this picture!

One of the best russian contraptions next to the Flying Tank. All terrain Russian Landing Gear. Just snap on a WIG Wing and some floats and it is the All Russian Monster.

An-2 Colt on Kamaz(Stallion) would have been Udarny!.

I too thought it was parked on top of the train. You don't know how much fun this thing would be to drive through Boston during rush hour! How come my school bus was never like this back when I was in elementary school??

If you are interested what you can see in front of the Antonov: an old tram number 808 from the City of Szeged (Hungary) stored now in Cegl├ęd which was built in 1975 and stopped the operation around 2008
